Single photon counter

LASER COMPONENTS

LASER COMPONENTS now offers a single photon counting module for time correlated applications. The COUNT® T is equipped with an avalanche photodiode (active area of 150 μm) produced in house and features a high detection efficiency of >80% and a temporal resolution of up to 350 ps.

In time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC), single photons are counted and the time of detection is determined based on a reference signal. Here, a laser pulse generally serves as a reference. This method is a statistical counting method.

The COUNT® T is equipped with an avalanche photodiode (active area of 100 µm) produced in house and features a high detection efficiency of >70% and a temporal resolution of up to 350 ps.

The The COUNT® T will be showcased at SPIE Photonics West 2016 in San Francisco, 13-18 February.
